Microplastics Stormwater Filter Cartridge Overview

Fabco Industries’ new unique microplastics stormwater filter cartridge is specifically designed to capture microplastics in stormwater. NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) defines microplastics as any plastic fragment less than 5mm (0.2in) in length. Other sources define MP as having a specific size range of 0.0001mm to 5mm. This cartridge will stop 80% of MP ranging from 0.002mm to 5.0mm

The lightweight filter cartridge comes fully assembled and snaps securely in place with a quick twist. The modular cartridge design allows quick and easy replacement while containing the spent material for safe transport and disposal.
